Susie, do you have access to a more upright bike (ie; mountain bike, hybrid, or recumbent)? I know you've enjoyed cycling in the past.

The road bike geometry would likely put too much pressure on your neck, but I wonder about an upright bike. Might be worth buying a cheap cruiser-style bicycle to take it easy on the next few months.

Hi, Wade, thanks for jumping in.

I was hanging out last night with some cycling buddies, and a couple volunteered their recumbents for me to try. THere's even---get this--a recumbent, tandem TRIKE available!

I do have an old cycle-to-market single-geared baby fitted with rear and handlebar baskets, and I will for certain try that first come spring. It's flat from here to the market.

I haven't quite given up on the idea of long-distance cycling, but my biggest problem right now is mental: I'm terrified of going downhill. I feel fragile in a way I never did before, and that's no condition for cycling long distances over the mountains.

I'll have to exercise my nerve as much as anything next year. Fear is a real downer.

Susie

Hey, you, too Sarena! You did a great job judging at the meet today. I hope you soon feel ready to lift again yourself. It ain't easy bein' sidelined, is it?
